" joshua oppenheimer will be with us. magnificent film. (applause) we start tonight right here in new york city. >> stop and frisk is a controversial tactic used by police in big cities like new york, los angeles, and philadelphia. in new york, it's been policy for 11 years, defined like this: a person is temporarily detained on the street against his or her will for the purposes of questioning. >> john: that's right, stop and frisk, not just the title of a '90s ripoff of "turner and hooch" about a cop whose partner is a cat. the movie has some problems once the bad guys realize they can completely distract the cat with a laser pointer. damn it, frisk, focus! >i've almost got it, sarge! (laughter) for years, opinion in new york has been divided on -- (laughter). i'll allow it. for years, opinion has been divided on frisk with black and latino residents of the city saying it's an invasion of their liberty and white redents saying "oh, i think i heard a thing about that on npr. is that still happen? ing".

. is that still happen? ing". (laughter) obviously, i don't mean to suggest that it's only use against the city's minorities, but it is almost that. >> between 2004 and 2012 there were 4.43 million stops. 52% were black suspects 3, 1% were hispanic. >> of these thousands of daily frisks, only 6% lead to an arrest. >> john: it's basically like catch-and-release fishing except you get to feel the fish up and shout at it a bit before throwing it back. also, almost all the fish are brown. (laughter) this policy has been in place for over a decade. but there may be some good news on the horizon if you happen to be a minority who likes walking. >> today a federal judge called the n.y.p.d.'s policy of stop, question, and frisk unconstitutional. the judge said the city adopted a policy of indirect racial profiling. >> john: it's indirect racial profiling. (laughter) it's like a cop saying "should we frisk people outside the apollo or outside the jimmy buffett concert? tell you what, let's flip a coin and then head up to harlem." (laughter) the judging ruling found the police disproportionately target

tonight with breaking news. >> the big chill between the u.s. and russia may be heading for the deep freeze. president obama has officially canceled his one-on-one meeting with vladimir putin. >> john: canceled? wow, that's a big diplomatic slap in the face, a dip move, if you will. ( laughter ) although if the president really wanted to hurt putin he would have said he was coming and just stood him up. trust me, that hurts a lot more. or if you wanted to be more passive aggressive the president could have said let's meet somewhere that's not technically in russia like, i don't know, moscow airport. ( cheers and applause ) look, we all know-- we all know why this meeting was canceled, right. >> president obama formally canceled next month's meeting in moscow with russia's president vladimir putin. why? >> missile defense, human rights, that controversial law there that bans gay relationships and a lot of concern about how it's going to impact the olympics in sochi. >> john: oh, that's right because russia will not allow a hint of homoswullity in an event where you either win a skin-t

( laughter ) a couple of weeks ago, we discussed how, due to an unhelpful u.s. law we are unable to call the egyptian military takeover of their government a coup because if we utter the diplomatically offensive "c" word we will no longer be able to send egypt aid, our only nonmissile-based move. don't worry. since then we've come up with an ingenious solution. >> law does not require us to make a formal determination. that is a review we have undergone, as to whether coup took place and it is not in our national interest to make such a determ
